Every year I get asked the same question, ‘are the holidays a good time to sell?’ 

Many people think it’s better to wait until after the holidays to put their home on the market, but the truth is the fourth quarter (Oct.-Dec.) is actually one of the better times of year to sell.
There are many reasons it's not just a good time to sell, but a GREAT time to sell your home. Below are the top reasons:
    1. Buyers are more serious - If buyers are taking the time to look at homes during the chaos of the holidays, you know they are serious about finding and purchasing a home.
    2. There is less competition - Because most people think that it is best to list after the first of the year, there are fewer homes on the market. Less competition means more money for you! The competition is cut almost in half!
    3. Buyers are more emotional - Homes look fantastic during the holidays: the lights, decorations, etc. All of this adds an emotional element for buyers. 

    4.  WPAFB -Wright Patterson Air Force Base relocates throughout the year, which means your home will stand out due to less competition!
    5. Realtors have more time to focus  on you!! If you list during the "slow" season, many Realtors will devote more attention to getting your home sold!!
    These are just five reasons why the holidays are a great time to sell. If you’re thinking about selling, give me a call.
